Tallulah's


Rainy, miserable day here. Gerry and I went down to Franklin St. for lunch today. A lot of places were packed, there was a home UNC basketball game yesterday so lots of parents are still in town. We ended up at Tallulah's and had an amazing meal. This is a turkish restaurant, lots of lamb and kabobs, but also a great selection of vegetarian dishes. We had a turkish salad, lentil patties, grape leaves, hummus, grilled shrimp, and baklava for dessert. It was such a nice treat for such a crappy day. We sat in one of the window booths, dressed with comfy cushions, pillows and silk tapestries on the walls. So cozy to sit there and watch the rain, have a nice healthy meal and laugh at ourselves. Gerry had a quick little nap while waiting to pay, haha!
I felt sort of bad for them. They are between Med Deli and Mint, two very popular restaurants in town. We in fact were heading to Med Deli but the line was out the door, so we went to Tallulah's and lucky us, there was only one other party in the place, there was great music, it was peaceful, and the food is way better when you don't have to stand in line to order it. I love this place, if you are ever in town, check it out! Sorry, the photos were shot with Gerry's iphone, not terribly great quality! There was so much food left over, we will have a nice dinner too!
Now for some hot tea and a movie. It is Sunday, after all, day of rest.
Peace ya'll.....

Oh, I wish we were with you- that is my kind of food! I will not stand in line to eat- terrible but I just can't do it. I once walked in one door of a restaurant and right out the other door and to the car before Mark realized I was gone! he laughed at me but I am not that willing.
We have found better food and service when the staff is not rushed.
We are spending our Sunday painting a room upstairs. Time consuming but boy it is looking really good.
This room is going to become a music room for Mark- worth doing!

oh cool! Our front dining room became the music room for Gerry and Wesley. everyone should have a music room! We pretty much did the same thing today, in one door out the other :)

Avoiding the crowds is so often the way to find the really fun/interesting restaurants. It sounds like a place I'd like, too.
